on sunday. this is part of israelily forces attempt to broaden their attacks to include residences of hamas leaders. they hit a two story residential building and killed at least 12 people, including 10 people from the same family. there were an increase of hits overnight. they hit the police headquarters in gaza as well as another house. and those casualty numbers have yet to reach us. but officials in gaza say that at least at this point 95 have been killed over the course of this latest conflict. here in israel, the rockets keep coming. there have been 16 fired at the country since midnight last night. a good portion of these rockets are being taken down and intercepted by a missile defense system here known as the iron dome. it's been incredibly successful and has limited certainly casualties here on the ground in israel. >> seems like an intractable situation. stephanie, thank you. a lot of the analysis over the weekend, harass leader that was killed was instrumental in bringing the supply chain to get these long range 45 miles that can hit tel aviv to bring them in from iran, they kno
here as a massacre. one that targeted the home of a senior member of hamas' military according to the israelis but inside that residential house were families. 12 people were killed including four children and four women. it's created a sense of anger among many here in the palestinians of gaza that the international community is not exerting enough pressure to stop the assault on the people of the gaza strip. palestinian faction says they are prepared in the event that israel launches a ground invasion here. they are willing to defend their territory with their lives. in egypt the focus has shifted a bit because politicians are trying to broker a cease-fire or truce between israel and palestinian factions. there are sticking points but there are signals or at least some early signs that a truce may be on the horizon that would be welcome news for people certainly in gaza and also in israel. back to you. >> thank you so much for that. reporting through the weekend and today from gaza. oil prices rising as fighting between israel and hamas does continue. could this be the beginn
of israel that israel has conducted a military action killing a senior hamas leader. an air strike in the gaza area killed the head of the hamas military. one of the things a number of traders heard about that earlier but one thing is an israeli military spokesman says this is the start of a broader operation. so that is one of the things. it seems to have the market a little bit on edge and has them bidding up oil at this hour. the one trader i talked to said between the tensions between israel and hamas if we'll see that spiking up obviously israel and syria over the last few weeks, that's better than israel and iran. back to you. >> that's true. bertha, thank you very much for that. congratulations if you are hold cisco shares coming into this session. they are experiencing a good bump on last night's results. we'll talk about what they are doing right and whether risks lie ahead next on the program and who would be affected the most if we go over the fiscal cliff? we'll get up close and personal with the cliff and as we head toward the break, another fiscal cliff fact. >> if la

cain and morsi? >> well, look what happened. morsi came out of the gaza/israeli/hamas battle and his stock was improving so he overstepped himself, but what surprised me was the egyptian people and the high court reprimanded him, and they said we're not going to take this from you, and he's now backing off. so i agree with senator mccain, but i'm also encouraged a little bit that the -- that the egyptian people stood up to their own prime minister and said you're going too far. >> what does it mean? mean, how do you ignore or just take away the power of your own judiciary? i mean, that's really at the heart of the egyptian separation of powers. it's at the heart of the egyptian democracy. how farhink morsi is going to take this? i mean, is he going to give himself dictatorial powers? >> well, manifestly he tried. now the question is it's not so much the justices he has to worry about. what happens if he has riots in the street again, this time against him? and what happens if the economy continues to disintegrate? then what does he do? try to pull a chavez in venezuela and keep declaring t
. another thing that's making many traders nervous is this -- a few hours ago hamas tried to shell jerusalem. the rockets did fall short. had they hit the city, it would have been the first time since the 1967 six-day war that jerusalem had been hit by rocket fire. israel now considering calling up 75,000 reservists. that is a big deal. this picture near the gaza-israel front just came in. israeli crews preparing tanks for a possible ground incursion now. here is video of israel intercepting a rocket fired from gaza heading for a town in the southern part of the country. in the two days since israel killed hamas' military leader in response to a wave of rocket attacks against civilians in southern israel, israel's main stock index, the tel aviv 25, has fallen 2.5%. tel aviv stock exchange operates sunday to thursday. it's therefore not open today. israel stocks that trade in the u.s., of course, are active today, and that includes -- look at that picture. that includes teva down 4% for the week. givin, down 4%. they are the ones that put the camera in the pill. internet security firm checkpo
